Shahbal: Why Mombasa should vote out Joho

Mombasa gubernatorial candidate Suleiman Shahbal has termed governor Ali Hassan Joho’s administration as a clueless one, as it continues to fail in solving some of the problems facing the coastal city.

Speaking while appearing in an interview on NTV’s political talk show Sidebar, the Jubilee candidate went full throttle in attacking the current county government under Joho’s stewardship.

Some of the issues that he pointed out included, unemployment, which he said is the root cause of the rampant social ills that the youth have embarrassed.

He also blamed the current administration of failing to keep the city clean.

“I think the failure to clean Mombasa is a symptomatic of an absolute failed administration. I mean, if you can’t even clean your garbage, frankly you can’t pretend that you can run anything. If you can’t solve the garbage problem then you definitely have no clue on how to solve the challenge of reviving your economy,” Shahbal said.

“If you listen to the speeches he makes in his campaigns there is nothing he says about what he has done and what he is planning to do. And if we continue with the current administration we are going to have another five years of disaster in Mombasa,” he added.

This will be the second time the two political adversaries face off on the ballot box. Mr Joho emerged victorious in the 2013 general election defeating Shahbal with a margin of 46,735 votes.
